IIM Indore gets its first international accreditation

For four of its full-time programmes

Indian Institute of Management Indore has received its first international accreditation from the Association of MBAs (AMBA, a UK-based accreditation agency) for four of its full-time programmes — Two-Year Post Graduate Programme in Management (both at Indore and Mumbai), One-Year Full Time Executive Post Graduate Programme in Management (EPGP) and Five-Year Integrated Programme in Management (IPM, 4th and 5th Year).

IIM Indore is now among the few B-schools accredited by AMBA in India, and the fourth IIM to receive this prestigious accreditation. In a span of 20 years, IIM Indore has become an innovator; it is the only IIM to offer a five-year integrated programme in management, Post-Graduate Programme and week-end Post-Graduate Programme for Working Executives in Mumbai, and the first IIM to offer a doctoral programme in management for working professionals.

Congratulating faculty, staff, students, alumni and other stakeholders of IIM Indore, Professor Rishikesha T Krishnan, Director, IIM Indore, said, “One of our key objectives is to maintain world class academic standards and international accreditation is an important affirmation of this achievement. Going forward, IIM Indore hopes to build on the strengths we have already demonstrated.”
